Phosphorescent’s Matthew Houck has shared his official video for “C’est La Vie No. 2,” the initial visual from his first new album in five years, C’est La Vie, which was released this past October on Dead Oceans. Directed by Jordan Halland, “C’est La Vie No. 2” follows Houck’s solo adventures through late nights in New Orleans and sunrises in the Caribbean Sea, as serene color palettes make idyllic backdrops for the song’s “starkly personal lyrics” (Rolling Stone) – ruminating on individual purpose, cosmic insignificance, and the ongoing cycle of life, death and new birth. Watch the “C’est La Vie No. 2” video here:
